  • March 28th Dinner Post

    Good Morning!

    It sure is windy out with wind gusts of 30 MPH. The high will be 29 and the low of 19 with more snow expected.

    I am making chicken and rice soup along with some dinner rolls and chocolate pudding cake. Yes rosie, the one that you love also. Great day for the aroma filling the house.

    What is your Monday night meal?
    Heritic, rebel, a thing to flount,
    He drew a circle that shut me out.
    But love and I had the wit to win,
    We drew a circle that took him in.

      It’s been a bad night and day. Ken fell during the night, I was able to get him back up and into bed. He fell again this morning and I couldn’t get him off the floor, had to call the paramedics to help get him up. They took him to Skagit valley hospital ER and he’s being admitted, he’s getting a blood transfusion and they are coordinating with his other doctors. I talked to the doctors, they feel, as I do, that hospice is the next logical step for him. I’m hurting and sad and just sick at heart. All good thoughts, healing energy and prayer is appreciated.

      Dinner will be whatever I can scrounge out of the fridge, I’m too worn out to cook.

        I am so sorry to hear all this Charlene, my heart goes out to you and my thoughts are with you. I think hospice will be the best thing for your husband. I don't know if you want to do hospice at home or in a hospital unit.
        You also need to think about what will be best for you. This is so hard ( hugs , Charlene )

            Thank you Sabine and rosie, I’m just reeling right now. I’m not sure which way to go for hospice. If his mind was fully functioning I’d say home, but it’s not working well at all, so a hospital setting might be better. Too many decisions to make right now.

              Charlene... I can't put into words how sad I feel for you. This has happened so quickly. Know that I'm praying for you and for Ken... (((((HUG)))))

                  Charlene - This is truly heartbreaking. There are no words that can express the emotion you are feeling right now. Your CopyKat family is here to support you. Who would have thought your retirement years would turn into this, especially since you have only been in Washington State for a few years. These are supposed to be the happy times. I wish there was something we all could do for you. I agree that doing hospice in a medical setting would be the best for Ken. You certainly don't want him to get up again during the night and fall and you are not able to help him up. Thinking of you and Ken - God bless.
